At Best

After some time,
age-old and seemingly wise,
you begin to understand
that life is a series of
fractured experiences,
with the ongoing goal
of achieving excellent purchase,
unachievable by any means,
all the failed re-approximations
and festering wounds,
proof-positive that
too much time is being spent
on hopes broken beyond
all recognition of dreams.

Mani de Li ... just happened upon it with my new high-speed internet, and would like to have something like this commissioned to be painted on the inside of my skull.
